For land activities, the girls do rock-climbing, abseiling and bouldering. At the end of their stay with us, all students will achieve SNCS (Singapore National Climbing Standards) and SNAS (Singapore National Abseiling Standards) Level 1 certification.
All activities provide numerous opportunities and occasions for the girls to step out of their comfort zones and work as a team. These activities train mental toughness and physical endurance, often stretching the girls to new heights.
